“The Revolutionist” was first released under the name J-Love & Ric Nice feat. Guru and under the title “Behold”. Guru then released the track on his fourth studio album outside of Gang Starr as Baldhead Slick & da Click. Now the title was changed to “The Revolutionist”. But the version/mix I love (the first of the YouTube videos here on this page.), is found on a bootleg 12″ under the Gang Starr name and also here called “The Revolutionist”.
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.
”Look at all these slave masters, posin’ on yo’ dollar” … On “JU$T,” Run The Jewels deliver some hard hitting lyrics attacking the money system and the injustice that comes with it. Let’s face it, capitalism isn’t the same as democracy. Democracy is everyone equal rights, and that’s not what a capitalist society delivers. If you can afford two lawyers when charged with something, of course you have an advantage compared to someone living in the projects with no money.
9/10 … It’s been a loooooong time since I heard an album that emidettly when it’s over I put it on again and again and again…
“State of the Union” is their new aggressive and simply fantastic track. Produced by DJ Premier, it’s “a fiery return to the frontlines as they take on Donald Trump and his fascist regime,” according to a new press release. It continues: “An unflinching statement about the destruction the current administration has unleashed on the country and its people, ‘State of the Union (STFU)’ speaks truth to power while urging people to fight against racism, injustice and oppression with their vote.”
For me a new discovery, a duo consisting of Seven Shawn (Cousin of K-Def) and John Doe (Cousin of Marley Marl). They had a short career during the mid 1990’s where they released three 12” and also recorded one album that never got released. They came to my attention when I heard the brilliant title track from the groups […]
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
Don’t much to say about this one lyricswise, but here are the mighty Redman showing his greatness with more or less just one long flow. This is one of these rare tracks that I can listen to repeat over and over again without getting tired of it. And it was only released on a mixtape back in 2014 …..
On a sunny summerday, or more precise on the 11th of August 1973 at 1520 Sedgwick Ave, South Bronx, New York. DJ Kool (Clive Campbell) Herc’s Back To School Jam spawned the culture that we now know as Hip-Hop. This all started when his younger sister, Cindy Campbell, became inspired to earn extra cash for […]
This session is simply amazing, pure joy!, all smiles, laughter and having fun for 57 minutes. I just had an awesome time in their company with a big smile all over my face. Few persons in the Grime scene or Hip Hop is as charismatic as Kano. Giggs is the first guest and then they […]
10/10 … Amazing documentary about life in New York 1977. This is my #1 place I would go to if I knew how to time travel. I have always loved decadence, it gives me for some reason the feeling of being alive. Here we get to take a trip through the evolution of Hip Hop, with among others KRS-One and Afrika Bambaataa, through porn star Annie Sprinkle and the XXX live shows on 42nd street. The disco scene, the gay scene, the grafitti movement, the serial killer Son of …..
A work in an never ending process, with new music added all the time. For the moment a couple of hundred great Hip Hop tracks throughout history.
”Cold War” an amazing track, pure and raw project poetry with a haunting sample underneath. Just read the lyrics: ”Babies cryin’ brothers dyin’ and brothers getting knocked
Shit is deep on the block and you got me locked down
In this cold, cold worldIt was the night before New Year’s, and all through the fuckin’ projects
Not a handgun was silent, not even a Tec
Outside as I’m stuck, by enemies who put fear
And blasted on the spot before the pigs were dere
You know hoods robbers snipers new in sight, fuck blue and white
They escape before them flash the fuckin’ lights
